There are a few ways you can approach putting together great appetizers. The first is to find ready-made gluten free appetizers. The second is to research a few gluten free appetizers recipes. Each method has it’s own set of benefits.
If you’re in a rush then finding ready-made appetizers will likely be your best bet. The best place to get gluten free appetizers from is a local gluten free bakery. If you can give them a few days notice you will be able to place a special order. Gluten free bakeries are particularly helpful for making items to go along with dips and spreads. Gluten free crostini or crackers are ideal with salmon spread or hummus.
Another option is to make gluten free appetizers yourself. Many gluten free recipes are quick and easy to follow and don’t require a lot of advanced preparation. A little bit of smoked salmon, some cream cheese and a few diced green onions will make a terrific salmon spread that can be used on veggies, crackers or gluten free breads or bagels. Experiment with a new appetizer recipe each time and before you know it you’ll have a stack of favorites you can turn to anytime you need to prepare appetizers in a hurry.
